Neither these abbreviations nor their base phrases occurs anywhere in the 
ANSI Smalltalk Standard. The closest similar things would be the chapter 
titles for various groups of related protocols.  Those are:

         Fundamental Protocols
         Valuable Protocols
         Exception Protocols
         Numeric Protocols
         Collection Protocols
         Date and Time Protocols
         Stream Protocols
         File Stream Protocols
